This Mardi Gras Pound Cake is ultra festive, super moist and tender with a bright, zippy lemon flavor and an addictive glaze on top!
  • One package Krusteaz Meyer Lemon Pound Cake Mix
  • ¾ cup water
  • 10 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons water for glaze
  • Yellow, green and purple gel food coloring
  • Yellow, green and purple sprinkles or jimmies
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 8x4-inch loaf pan.
  2. Stir together water, melted butter, the egg and the Krusteaz Meyer Lemon Pound Cake Mix until blended.
  3. Divide batter evenly among three bowls and tint each bowl a different color: one bowl yellow, one bowl green, and one bowl purple.
  4. Spoon the batter one color at a time into the prepared pan, layering and alternating the colors so each slice will have a new variation. Gently swirl 1-3 times with a butter knife. Be careful not to over-swirl as this will result in muddied colors.
  5. Bake 38-42 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely before glazing.
  6. To glaze, mix the enclosed glaze packet with 2 Tablespoons water. Pour glaze over the top of the cooled cake and immediately top with sprinkles. Serve.
